New Jersey Leads the Way

The Canadian Press: "A New Jersey school district suspended a first-grade teacher after parents complained that she had posted derogatory comments about her students on her Facebook page.

The Record newspaper reports that the teacher wrote about feeling like 'a warden' and referred to her 6-year-old and 7-year-old students as future criminals."

At a staff meeting at the beginning of this school year, our principal told us to watch what we posted on Facebook as it would undoubtedly get back to her or the other teachers or the students. Apparently, after a hard day, a stressed teacher had posted a long rant on Facebook. One of her "friends" had forwarded it to the principal.

/Just one of the many reasons I don't have a Facebook page.
